Investment Strategy

The BlueOrchard Microfinance Fund (BOMF) was founded in 1998 as the first private and fully commercial microfinance investment fund in the world. Since its inception, it has been managed strategically as a pure fixed-income fund, investing in microfinance institutions in emerging and frontier markets, with systematic currency hedging. This allows investors to obtain stable and attractive financial returns while fostering financial inclusion. It is open to institutional and private investors in USD/EUR/CHF.

The information contained does not constitute a solicitation, recommendation, offer or invitation to subscribe or redeem fund units, to execute any transactions or to conclude any legally binding agreements.

Especially the information provided on the following webpages is not meant for distribution to or use by natural or legal persons residing in countries where its distribution or use

ii bis) Switzerland.

If you are a retail investor, please contact your financial advisor, who will inform you about BlueOrchard’s investment solutions. For Switzerland, BlueOrchard’s investment solutions are only intended for qualified investors as defined by the terms of the Swiss regulation on collective investment schemes, notably the Swiss Federal Act on Collective Investment Schemes (CISA; RS 951.31) and the Collective Investment Schemes Ordinance (CISO; RS 951.311). Further, some of BlueOrchard’s investment solutions do not have a representative and paying agent in Switzerland and therefore are not for distribution in Switzerland.

ii ter) USA and UK.

BlueOrchard’s investment funds are not licensed in the United States of America under the 1993 Securities Act or the 1949 Investment Company Act. Units of BlueOrchard’s investment funds may not be offered, sold or delivered within the United States of America. Further, none of the investment funds are registered in the United Kingdom and therefore they may not be publicly offered or sold in the United Kingdom.

iii) Investment risks.

Investors must be aware that all investments carry a certain degree of risk and that such risks can result in the total loss of the capital invested. Some investments may not be readily realizable as the market may be illiquid and therefore valuing the investment and identifying the risk to which investors are exposed may be difficult. Past good performance in value or profit are not a guarantee, nor an indication of future gains. Fund unit prices and the corresponding returns fluctuate over time, resulting in a price upon redemption that may either be above or below the initial subscription price. Furthermore, the currency of an investment fund or a share class of an investment fund may be different than the investor’s home country and currency fluctuations may increase or decrease the return. Investors should carefully read the information contained in each fund’s documentation on investment policies and investment risks in order to be able to properly assess the specific associated risks.
